Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 65): Probability and risk assessments

Note 64 in this series introduced the topic of risk assessment. Such assessments are often required in support of design and site execution. In recent years, the inevitability of ‘risk’ has become widely accepted and much thought has gone into understanding how risks arise and how they can be mitigated.

Note 64 focused on hazards, but to complete an assessment, it is necessary to consider the probability of the identified hazards occurring.
